    M1079 clearance light overload situation

    The M1079 has 24 clearance lights all of which run through this one 25 amp breaker in the PDP which in my case is getting too hot to touch and tripping. I am thinking swap to LED bulbs?

    2HN Battery AGM equivalent SNAFU

    So I had this great idea to standardize on Deka AGM batteries in group 51, which is very close in size to the 2HN battery used in generators, Jeeps, M37's, M715's etc. Since Deka is a trusted supplier to the military, it was my plan to use this quality battery in everything I own including my...

    Deuce Bumperette extensions - never seen before

    Folks today I was cutting up the world's rusty-est deuce frame and came across these bumperette extensions. The frame serial area is deep rust pitted so couldn't sleuth any there. Was this a kit of some type or is this stock on shop vans or some other chassis that I have never noticed before?

    GMV sponson top plate

    Someone has right sides of these “fender toppers” on ebay but not the left side. I bought the one side and was amazed that the holes lined up perfectly on my 1025A2. So I decided to repop the opposite side. Common aluminum .25 thick. It is a mirror image of the ebay item except for a...

    Deuce crank pulley wobble/loose

    Got a multifuel deuce in and crank pulley/harmonic balancer totally loose. For anyone that has run into this before, is this a busted crankshaft? Before I tear into it just wondering.

    Mystery rim damage?

    I have several used rims that have ugly radial scraping going on inside the rim. What causes this? Rims are straight from uparmored HMMWVs.

    USMC Macaw Backpack Fire Extinguisher

    Finally got my hands on one of these units. You may recall my thread on the HMMWV bracket available for this extinguisher. The unit uses compressed air from a SCBA bottle to create foam from a tank full of a water/foam concentrate. The foam is then blown 30 feet from the nozzle. The foam can...

    KDS Yellow box blown diode repair

    Has anyone been down this path already? Big power diode blown up near mosfets that juice the glow plugs. Not sure of rating, will order 50 volt 30 amp or so and see if it fixes box. Box would not glow.

    Brake light on, locks up rears

    Newly arrived M1025A2. Master cyl full, no leaks, stops on a dime but it feels like rear axle is doing the work, locks up tires rear only with hard application. Any special HMMWV wisdom here other than bleed brakes and replace master cylinder if problem does not resolve?

    Macaw Fire Extinguisher Bracket for HMMWV

    Well I thought I knew about most HMMWV add-on kits to date, but I missed this one that the USMC came up with. The Macaw unit is a backpack foam system that uses compressed air and a foam solution to shoot a jet of foam at a fire. The system can also be used for decontamination with a different...

    Experiences with Alaska ECU?

    Anyone running one of these to cool/heat your shop? I bought 6 of them a while back and am about to install on a leased building, BUT I am seeing people report that they burn out after weeks of operation and Alaska tells you to f off if you call for proprietary parts. This is the 5 ton model.

    Recovery of Director Van M259A1 from NASA

    Had a successful recovery today of a Nike Hercules "Trailer Van Director M259A1" from the NASA Johnson Space Center. Went a lot better than my last recovery there when the alternator on my 915 caught fire at the security checkpoint. This time zero problems. NASA was using this until very...
